Our thanks to Ian for alerting us to this piece:
A few lines at the end (below) are simply incorrect – decades of research have been done on this subject of domestic violence, and women’s and men’s experiences of it as both perpetrators and victims – but otherwise it’s an interesting article. It would have been good to see it pointed out that in most cases of unreciprocated domestic violence, the perpetrators are women.
One of the main questions regarding the issue remains unanswered; why does domestic violence against men occur? Whether this is due to women believing that this violence is a means towards independence, or whether the violence is traced back to childhood trauma or abuse from a previous partner is yet to be discovered.
